NHS England figures show no more people had died in hospital at Wye Valley NHS Trust as of 5pm on Sunday (May 11).

It means 43 people have now died at the Trust after testing positive for Covid-19.

The victims were among 4,522 deaths recorded across the Midlands, up from 4,495 the previous day.


Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the last 24 hours may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance says: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that happen in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.

Across England, the death toll hit 23,359 on Saturday, up from 23,150 on Saturday - an increase of 209.
